Circle of Excellence

For decades the Home + Remodeling Show has been your source for home improvement experts, advice, and ideas. We bring hundreds of renovation and remodeling professionals together to help with your next project. To further assist you and all Northern Virginia homeowners in finding reputable companies your home can be trusted with, we've developed the Circle of Excellence.

This one-of-a-kind program highlights local businesses that meet the following criteria:
  • Have participated in 25 or more Home + Remodeling Shows (including the Capital Home Show and Capital Remodel + Garden Show)
  • Have an A rating or higher with the Better Business Bureau 
Once a business proves its quality, (an A rating with the Better Business Bureau), they are invited to participate in our Circle of Excellence program. Not only can you find participating exhibitors in our online Buyers Guide, in our Show Guide (their listing will be marked with a decal), and at the Dulles Expo Center, you can also get to know these trustworthy companies below. Read on to see who made the cut.
